7:04 am
closely. back over to you. we move on to washington where senator mccain has leveled another shot at president trump taking on the inequity of the wealthy who avoided getting drafted for health deferments like bone spurs. this as john kelly escalated the war of words wildcat congresswoman wilson. our senior white house correspondent cecilia vega with the latest. good morning. >> good morning, everybody. this controversiy is not going away. the white house hoped that appearance by john kelly would put it to rest but the president tweeting about it again. john mccain never mentioned president trump's name but seemed like a shot at him directly. he received a deferment for a bone spur diagnosis. >> one aspect of the conflict that i will never ever countenance is that we drafted the lowest income level of america and the highest income level found a doctor that would say that they had
7:05 am
that is wrong. that is wrong. if we're going to ask every american to serve, every american should serve. >> reporter: this weekend the arizona senator and war hero went public with his criticism. this as one of the four american special ops soldiers killed in that deadly ambush in niger was laid to rest, sergeant la david johnson at the center of the public battle over president trump's condolence call to johnson's pregnant widow. the president has yet to comment on the specifics of the ambush. instead continuing to talk about the congresswoman in the car with johnson's widow and heard her say, johnson knew what he signed up for but when it happens it hurts anyway. the president was back to tweeting this weekend. he called the congresswoman wacky, repeatedly, and said she's killing the democratic party, the white house as i said really thought this would go away but the president was back to tweeting about it.
7:06 am
kelly, as well. cecilia, thanks very much. meghan mccain, co-host of "the view" is here and incredible to see how something in some ways is simple and sad as a phone call to the widow of a fallen soldier would become such a controversy. >> yeah, i hate this entire news cycle right now. i think us as all americans should never politicize the death of a soldier. i hate who it's turning into and hate the questions about general kelly and if you cared about benghazi as a conservative you have to care about what happened in niger as well with all the questions coming out and all of the sort of unanswered issues about exactly what happened over there. and i hate that it's sort of becoming a left/right issue and we can't just, you know, honestly let la david johnson be buried and let his widow grieve and move on. >> there are a lot of real questions about what actually happened in niger on that ambush. meantime, i know your father is going to be on "the view" today, coming off that latest salvo against the es
7:07 am
he's really slowing down right now, keeping it quiet. he's on for my birthday. didn't know he said that until i woke up this morning and my phone blew up but i think military service for my family as you're well aware is personal. both my brothers served multiple deployment and my family going back generations and generations so i think any time you talk about military service it is a different issue when you have served and when you have family members that have served and those that haven't. >> so you're seeing this and coming off the speech by senator mccain last week, the speeches by both president obama and president bush. how is the white house taking this in? >> they -- it's interesting to watch. this i've been asked directly about it and the way this white house is internalizing it they say these presidents aren't directly talking about president trump. >> they don't really believe that, do they? >> i think they do, george. i think they do. this is as you know an administration that doesn't take kindly to criticism and if the president's name is not spoken directly which
7:08 am
believe this is not about him. >> meantime, the president trying, meghan, to turn the attention to tax cuts. this has become priority a, b, c and d. >> we need a legislative win and going forward they need to change the news cycle all the way around. again collectively making all americans uncomfortable to be politicizing the death of four american soldiers, in fact. i have -- i'm like cautiously optimistic about tax reform but we couldn't get it together really on health care so i'm sort of like hedging my bets at this moment. >> cecilia, one other thing you saw senator mcconnell kind of putting it back in the president's court on the entire issue of health care. does he support the latest compromise or not? >> well, who knows? depends on the day of the week. he's been all over the map on this but the reality this isn't going anywhere any time soon. >> cecilia, meghan, thanks very much. we'll see you on "the view" at 11:00. coming up, i have an exclusive interview with myeshia johnson, the widow o

that has scholars and conspiracy theorists buzzing. abc's david wright is here with all the details. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. back in 1992 in the wake of oliver stone's movie, congress wanted to put an end to conspiracy theories surrounding the jfk assassination so they ordered all of the documents released. they said a final deadline, 25 years down the road everything to be unsealed by then unless the president objects, well, that deadline is up this week and the president plans to let it go forward. the very existence of top secret files concerning the kennedy assassination has fueled countless conspiracy theories. this weekend president trump tweeted, i i will be allowing as president the long blocked and classified jfk files to be opened. clearing the way for the imminent release of some 3,000 pages, mostly from cia and fbi case

7:35 am
front of him and that's when he actually said la david. i heard him stumbling on trying to remember my husband name and that hurt me the most because if my husband is out here fighting for our country and he risks his life for our country, why can't you remember his name? and that what made me upset and cry even more because my husband was an awesome soldier. he did what it take people -- other soldiers like five years to do in three years so imagine if my husband was here now, it took my husband three years to make e5. it take other soldiers to make five to six years to make e5. if he would have been here he would have been on his way to e6 or e7. >> what did you say to the president? >> i didn't say anything. i just listened. >> b

together. i knew they came to whatever agreement or understanding she had handled it and she was, you know, the first lady of miramax and he treated her incredibly respectfully. always. >> harvey would talk to me about women that he had had affairs with. i didn't necessarily believe him quite honestly because to believe him would be to believe the worst of some actresses who were friends of mine and i didn't really think that they had affairs with harvey and clearly they didn't but the idea that this predator, this assaulter was out there silencing women like that, it's beyond infuriating and the fact that the story is coming out now and the more it comes out, i want to know all of it. >> wequentin tarantino has said we've heard these things and never seen it so there's nothing you guys -- you've heard it. you never saw anything that -- >> he didn't do it out in the

there was something i was at with harvey in public and he was doing this thing and i missed it and there's some woman who was somehow assaulted and was at the golden globes or something and i somehow missed it then i'm sorry. >> how do we change? >> there has to be a comeuppance for all of that, all those people part of the chain and then have to make it safe to feel people can talk about this and in doing that i think that will scare away that kind of behavior. but more than anything, you're going to have to have a warning shot over the bow of anyone that would act like that that you will be outed and out of the business and more than that you might be prosecuted. i talked with my wife about this and she said, you know, she could find, you know, in her line of work which is human rights law, you know, there have been plenty of instances where some guy has tried, you know, to make -- some guy in power has tried to make their move. many if not
7:46 am
some point in their life faced this kind of behavior. i think that's a little bit of a surprise to some of us, that it's this big. that it's this prevalent and maybe that's something else that's good is that we're -- that we're going to have these discussions and have this conversation and again we'll make it harder for it to happen. >> and we want to let you know that they're unequivocally denied by mr. weinstein. mr. weinstein has further confirmed there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances and we will have much more of michael's interview with george clooney and matt damon and talk kids and so much more. >> you're seeing this cascade across industry after industry. >> we'll be right back. people would stare. psoriasis does that. it was tough getting out there on stage. i wanted to be clear.
